End Of Campaign Season

When the original Division released in 2016, players gave feedback to Ubisoft indicating that the endgame was a little light and there wasn't a whole lot to do after finishing the main campaign. Over time, Ubisoft remedied this with free updates and DLC, but they're understandably wary that people will think The Division 2 will have the same kind of ramp up.

To make sure people know the sequel has a strong endgame from the start, Ubisoft has released a trailer talking about endgame activities, and specifically the fight against the paramilitary terrorists the Black Tusk. Check it out below.

The Black Tusk come at the end of the main campaign to give you the true test of everything you have learned and gained so far when the player has hit level 30. They can take back areas you've already taken over and have robot dogs to both track and attack you.

Everything We Know About Companions In The Outer Worlds

You may be exploring a faraway star system in The Outer Worlds, but that doesn’t mean you need to be lonely. You encounter other people during your travels who are willing to fight by your side and join your crew, and who enrich your experience by offering different perspectives. We talked to a team of writers at Obsidian to get specific info on three of the companions you can recruit, as well as various other tidbits about the studio’s general approach to these characters.

Generally, one writer handles all of a companion’s interactions If you take a liking to one particular companion, odds are good that you have a single member of Obsidian’s writing team to thank. Though parts of the process are certainly collaborative, all of a character’s interactions are usually guided by one person for consistency’s sake. “It’s a lot easier to keep any character in the hands of one person, because everyone’s going to put their own spin on a character to some extent,” says senior narrative designer Carrie Patel. “The more a character changes hands, the more you’re getting multiple different executions, multiple different flavors.”

An Energized Halo-Portal Hybrid

An Energized Halo-Portal Hybrid

1047 Games’ first project, Splitgate: Arena Warfare, is a first-person shooter that infuses the much-adored combat of Halo 2 and 3 with the puzzle-solving mechanics of Portal 2. It offers an adequate repertoire of firearms, including the beloved assault rifle and high-powered railguns, four medium-scale maps tuned for verticality and clever flanks, avatar customization, and myriads of battle modes (including fan favorites like deathmatch, free-for-all, and Team SWAT). The game retains the meatier health pools of its Halo predecessors and the gunplay – especially because of the inclusion of Halo-modeled weapons like the burst-fire battle rifle and deceptively strong pistol – feels nostalgically familiar.

Next Red Dead Redemption Online Update Adds An Armor Event, Fishing Challenges, And More

A new update is coming to Red Dead Redemption Online next week featuring an event based on the armor quest in the game, competitive fishing, new weapons, cosmetics, and of course some good old fashioned Bonus XP.

The first new addition, Fool's Gold, takes the armor story quest from Red Dead Online and makes it into a multiplayer free roam event. Players fight to control a set of golden armor, then don the armor themselves to see how long they can hold onto it. It's basically a king of the hill mode but you're Solaire.

There's also now fishing challenges. Once you opt in, the game supplies you with everything you need to go get some fish except for the necessary human skills to go do it. Prove your mettle by catching the biggest fish the old west has ever seen.
